Ice Age Floods Institute Presents "Flaked Stone Tool Production in Ice Age America"

Ice Ages Floods Institute's Palouse Falls Chapter presents Flaked Stone Tool Production in Ice Age America on Wednesday, November 8 at 7 p.m. at the Colfax Library. 

After learning how to make and use flaked stone tools to better understand observed artifacts, James Payne, Executive Director of the Fort Walla Walla Museum, undertook an investigation into tool production techniques refitting some of the 11,000 pieces of stone debris from a workshop in northern Maine, which revealed both a technology with parallels to the Upper Paleolithic of Europe and a caution on interpretations derived from experimental archaeology.
